. >>> this afternoon the obama administration weighed-in on the situation in egypt raising a number of concerns. let's go to cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: joe, one of those concerns is about too much power in the hands of one person. we look back a few months ago it was unclear whether egypt was an ally of the u.s. now a senior administration official saying a relationship of trust has developed between president obama and president morsi. but as we know in any relationship things can get complicated. at the white house, a sense of calm kicking off the holiday season with the arrival of a 19-foot christmas tree. >> it is perfect. it's exactly what we needed. >> reporter: while the president headed to the golf course at joint base andrews. but the white house is closely watching developments in egypt. protests, violent at times and anger over what some see as president morsi's power grab, as declarations preventing any court from overturning his decisions. >> ilt appears the timing is curious. he's gotten this bump particularly for his role in mediating the cease-fire f
. romney is offered any kind of official position in an obama administration. the opportune word there, rev, is he may have some ideas. i think he is aware of the ideas that mr. romney has. even if you think about the business accumen and experiences, those are not the kind of business practices that we need in this kind of economic environment. the president is aware of what needs to happen going forward. and the gesture towards bipartisanship again is what is most important in this particular meeting. i don't think too much substantive will come out in terms of mr. romney having some kind of a position or being able to see his ideas about how to move forward in the economy into an obama administration's plan for the future of america. >> well, douglas brinkley, james peterson, thank you for your time tonight. i think it's a healthy thing. i'm very firm and clear on my positions but i also think it's very important until a divided country that we show none of it is personal and that the american people are far more important than any of our partisan views. that's why it was good the presid
the new egyptian pharaoh. he's concerned and says the obama administration, particularly president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have to be much tougher than they've been. they've been almost silent so far, and come out strongly this week in condemning morsi's power grab and in effect threaten them with u.s. military aid, economic aid. a debt forgiveness deal. so there's a lot of leverage and we have to start using it. >> he's also as many others are keeping a close eye on the benghazi investigation. he would in favor of a consolidated investigation into what happened. >> what he basically says is you have senate intelligence and homeland security and senate armed services and duplication of those on the house side. he said what we need a one super investigation, one super committee, and he and lindsey graham compared it to a watergate style committee. we had the top republican on senate intelligence, and they said we don't need that, we can do it with the standing economist. i'm not sure 0 there's a critical mass from democrats ane the creation of a special committee. i t
that the obama administration decimated al qaeda. that's something that rubs these republican senators the wrong way. i will tell you what she told them, i'm told, inside the classified briefing this morning, what she meant was it was the core of al qaeda, that's what the obama administration has decimated. but these republican senators think she's lef the impression it's al qaeda in general. last thing i will tell you i was told she did say to the republican senators behind closed doors she regrets saying what she said because she knows it was simply not right. >> where does this go from here? obviously investigating intelligence officials as well, i imagine? >> yes. as i said, the acting director of the cia also in this room. and senators, republicans and democrats, are not thrilled with the information that they got publicly or privately. but the -- what goes on from here more meetings. she's back here, we believe, this afternoon, tomorrow she has a meeting with one senator, bob corker of tennessee, probably others. she's going to make the rounds and she's going to keep trying to persuade sen
's letter rather interesting. he implied that the obama administration is not assisting congress in the libya investigation. have they been stonewalling in any way? what do you think? >> no, i don't think they've been stonewalling at all. look, john mccain is a bitter man who's never gotten over 2008 and attacks the president on almost anything. and lindsey graham is his mini me. what's going on here is that they had a theory, a conspiracy theory about libya. mitt romney tried to elaborate it in the second debate. he got slapped down. couldn't even talk about it in the third debate. the more we learn about this, the more we learn that this was a very standard procedure in terms of reaction. you put out there what you can put out there. you don't put out there things that would reveal sources and methods of intelligence or minimize the chances that you would catch someone. one of the things that's most disturbing about this, ed, once again, you have the republicans going after an african-american. we saw it with eric holder, we're seeing it with susan rice. it's the same old polit
she and the obama administration misled the american public about the deadly attack on americans in libya. >>> the election was only three weeks ago, but president obama's about to shift back into campaign mode. and we're learning exclusive new details about the personal and professional life of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's b
they had going into this. everything that george bush did the obama administration said we'll do the opposite. if george bush led from the front we'll lead from behind. george bush went in on the ground from iraq, we'll go in from the air in libya. george bush used contractors to provide security. we use the libyan guys to provide security in libya. the problem was the libyans weren't up to the job. the administration looked at all these countries. they helped topple dictators, now they were dictators but pro-american dictators and kept peace with israel in place 40 years. now what are you seeing? country after country in chaos or electing anti-american, islamist muslim brotherhood leaders. bill: what you're arguing they took all the decisions and flipped them on their head 180 degree turn. >> yeah. bill: how is that working out. >> not very well but they have gotten away with it so far. you and fox news have been carrying out the call but no other mainstream media is paying attending. they didn't pay attention until it became a sex scandal with david petraeus and everybody paid
. happening now, new troubles for some top members of the obama administration. more republicans senators say they're troubled by what the united nations ambassador susan rice is telling them. and now the acting cia director has some serious problems as well. president obama pulls out all the stops to keep middle class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, liby
in bengha benghazi. this as a cnn/orc new poll shows the obama administration's overall response to that attack does not get high marks. 54% of americans say they are dissatisfied with how the attack was handled. foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is at the state department this morning. >> hey, christine. the bottom line, as i look through this poll, i think it says americans do not see a cover-up. that's the one thing. but there is a lot of confusion in this poll, i think, in terms of what americans think, you know, happened, didn't happen, don't forget this has been -- it is confusing. and, it has been highly politicized. so when you look at some of the parts of this poll, for example, you know, thinking it could have been prevented, 48%. 42% think it could not have been prevented. and it's very hard, i think, for americans, to figure that out. who knows unless you have the intelligence information, and all of that has not come out yet. the other thing, though, is that americans are really split. 44-44 over how the administration handled it. you know, did they handle
's diplomatic feat helps restore a record tarnished by questions over how the obama administration handled the attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi. will the cease-fire hold? hillary clinton, whose husband, president bill clinton, tried but failed to broker a peace agreement between israelis and palestinians knows only too well how tenuous true peace can be. >> after that will trip which turned out, by the way, to be 11 days on the road all the way over to australia, then back through asia and then to the middle east and then home, secretary clinton is back here in washington. she's here for thanksgiving, and so far, as we've been reporting, that cease-fire appears to be holding. fred. >> all right. in the meantime, hillary clinton has made it very clear that she would likely leave this position at the end of her term. topping the list of those that might be nominated would be s s susan rice. she's been speaking for the first time in response to so much criticism that she has received on how she handled that attack in benghazi, libya. what more can you tell us about what she is saying a
interesting, revealing exactly what we had feared was going on inside the obama administration. first, let's start with his framing of the issue. >> democrats are also going to have to step up here and do some tough things, and the notion that somehow these deficits and our debt are not a threat to our national security and economic future is something i could not disagree with more strongly. there are some commentators on the left that suggest that. >> cenk: it's threat to national security. look, i want to balance the budget, right, but it's not a threat to national security. if oh, my god what if the interest rates go up, but they're at record lows. this is just fear mongering. it's republican talking points. and then second of all you're setting up a straw man. nobody's saying don't balance the budget. the question is how how do you balance it? they always send out a straw man, oh, well, see that commentators on the left don't want to compromise. they do want to. the question is what's in the compromise. the if you notice, the most important thing he said there they're going to have to
ally of hamas. it is yet to be seen what the response will be from the obama administration to these new powers that he has awarded himself. he has also ordered a new trial for his predecessor hosni mubarak. we will continue to watch the troubles developing inee lit up and the protest both in favor of and against that country's president. we'll keep an eye on it "happening now." also this fox news alert, holiday shoppers nationwide out in droves to take advantage of black friday tkaoerblgs man black friday deals, many of them cutting thanksgiving short to get in lines. they are offering deep discounts on popular items today. it's not all fun and games, thousands of walmart workers are off off the job. and stores are trying to recoup some of their losses from storm sandy. those stories coming up in hour. first, brand-new stories and breaking news. >> the hamas terror group now accusing israel of breaking the cease-fire rules two days after a truce was reached along the israel-gaza border. they are investigating reports of a palestinian man getting killed today. >> a massive c

that we need to change our healthcare system and that the obama administration and congress took a good step forward in doing the right thing. it is something that the republicans haven't done ever. so i think that it became a political fight and they ignore would the fact there's some decent policy in there. and now they haven't read the bill. they haven't done their homework. they've regurgitated talking points for so long -- >> stephanie: yep. >> they're behind the eight ball. none of them know what to do because they have to admit they were wrong. >> stephanie: they've succeeded in confusing a lot of americans about what's in there. >> they're confused. i don't think any of them really understand what it is we're doing and why we're doing it. i really believe that these people need to kind of sit down -- take it on the plane with you. >> stephanie: right. light reading on the plane for your holiday visit. i can only take so many calls for jacki schechner. we can't clear up all of the confusion on this s
. martha: china apparently is not a current see manipulator, that according to the obama administration. you remember mitt romney said he would declare them immediately if he became president. they do a report twice a year on whether the countries are manipulating their currency to try to gain trade advantages. a lot of people feel china is doing that. despite the decision not to declare them as such, the administration says the chinese yen remains significantly under valued 16-cents to every u.s. dollar. that makes it a lot easier to buy our goods. bill: three minutes past the hour now. republicans sent to introduce their own version of the d.r.e.a.m. act called the aeu grieve act. achieve act. it would provide legal status for hundreds of undocumented aliens. republicans are serious about coughing this issue. >> we have to get this ball rolling. we have to have a discussion that is sensible, calm, that discusses all of the different aspects of the issue and this particular part of immigration reform seemed a logical place to begin. >> steve centanni is live in washington on this. stev

scandal that would take down, you know, an official within the obama administration and they completely failed. and not only did they fail, it backfired. they lost credibility on their reporting as you just highlighted. susan rice is more popular and more well known than she was at the beginning and mccain looks humiliated by trying to create this committee out of full cloth. that went know where so fox has to kind of think now what is our role in the coming years if we can't -- if we can't use all of our energy and affect a change here. >> fox is a propaganda machine. >> joe, i want to be fair, there was one voice over there that tried to make a little sense and that was late in the campaign, was geraldo rivera. listen to what geraldo said. >> i think we have to stop politicizing. we're getting away from the real issue, which is, why wasn't there security before this happened? because that's the issue. but these preposterous allegations, reckless allegations -- do weapon want to know what happened? do we want to try and influence the election with a tragedy that happened in north afric
for the president of the united states. at the white house today, senior obama administration officials met with liberal leaders and union officials. "the washington post" reports that one told him after the meeting, quote, would the white house go off the cliff if it's between that and compromising their core principles? i was left with the impression that they would. illinois democratic senator dick durbin spoke today at the liberal center for american progress where he said this about the possibility of going off the cliff which fears of this show know is is really more of a curb than a cliff. >> some have called let's go over the cliff and watch what happens. we know if we're not careful, it will in fact stop economic growth and hurt everyone through every income category, particularly those most vulnerable. >> what he did not say is he must not go off the cliff. because the cliff is president obama's and the congressional democrats leverage over republicans. if we do go off the cliff or the curb on january 1st, a republican nightmare will occur. all income tax rates will go up and defe

about what's going on with the obama administration, and that doesn't sound like a positive secretary of state to him because they need to show their ability to be independent. but, again, senator corker's office now saying they believe they have a private meeting with ambassador rice. >>> it's often lost in politics of the fiscal cliff is how a cliff dive will actually impact your personal finances. and whether you have a job or not if you pay taxes, you're going to take a hit. first place you're going to see it, the federal tax rate for a middle income family. and that means an extra $2,000 out of pocket. next is the payroll tax. if you make, say, $50,000 a year, that's another $1,000 that you're going to fork over to uncle sam. then there is the alternative minimum tax, 27 million will be hit with this for the first time ever. and it's a separate calculation from the regular tax, the average cost, $3,700 a year. then there's the spending cuts, pre-cliff, if you're unemployed, you get 99 weeks of benefits, post cliff, 26 weeks. and home interest perks, bye-bye, those could all be go
, the obama administration now has in some ways an opportunity to move in and create not just a sense of calm or temporary cease-fire but actually to take the first steps in dealing with israel's security as well as the issue of the blockade of gaza. if she can move through phase one in the cease-fire, phase two, then deal with those immediate concerns, that then opens the way for what everyone is expected since ironically her husband got close to a peace agreement 12 years ago in camp david. everyone knows what the ultimate formula is going to be. this is a moment where the situation begs for a bigger solution than just another temporary cease-fire that opens the way as alan dershowitz says for something four years down the road. >> let's hold that thought. let's have a quick break, come back and talk about the big picture solution. i don't spend money on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forg
wants. so, as far as emphasis around the world, that's something that's coming from the obama administration. and look, the middle east is an area that obviously has been a problem i would say for decades but really for centuries, maybe my len yeah. so that there are periods of more focus or less focus, you know, is not that surprising. i think the white house wanted to give an opportunity for direct bilateral talks between the two sides and israel or in that region. and obviously, they have not always worked as well as one would like it to happen. >> jonathan, we heard stories today of hillary clinton and president obama sharing a plane ride and sort of reminiscing about the past four years and talking back about campaign times and really is amazing how much has changed and how far they have come in four short years. >> absolutely. you know, just four years ago these guys were or this man and this woman at each other's throats politically. some of the aides hated each other. you would not have necessarily expected to see this coming together but, you know, really started on t
me channel the obama administration for a second. this is how they're responding to the proposal. next! it ain't going to happen. he can sit here and sing all day saying put it on the table. trust me, it's not going to be on the table. so it's cute. it's an op-ed, it's great. but trust me, even he knows, the president is not going to put the affordle care act on the table and so it's not crazy like a fox. it's simply crazy. >> okay. >> what about the possibility though, i think this is a reality. to get a grand bargain that works, and i'm not a crazy person. i don't think we're getting one. >> so you claim. >> so i claim. my own self evaluation. but in order to actually get that done, we do have to make changes to health care. and i believe the president agrees with that. but we do. >> yeah. i think that's absolutely right. actually one of the tricky questions is going to be how the president is going to introduce some of these ideas about cost control that weren't part of that original debate. there is a lot of talk about administrative price controls, all pay rent setting, term
it could throw the country back into a recession if congress and the obama administration just can't make a deal. for many americans, the idea of a fiscal cliff is a hard one to wrap their brain around, but my next guest says the brain may be exactly what is needed get washington out of this whole mess. he is david rock, co-founder and author of "your brain at work." good morning. >> good morning to you, radi, good to be here with you. >> i have a lot to get through with you, but you say that our brains are inherently wired to categorize other people in one of two ways. in groups and out groups. can you explain what that means? >> absolutely. it's an inle function, and we see it in many other animals, including mammals as well. it's not just an american thing or western thing. it's very much a part of who we are, to decide if everyone we're speaking to is on our team or on another team. millions of years we lived in quite small communities so, we tend to only have a small number of people in our in group, and everyone else is kind of dangerous and potentially not to be trusted. it's very

on their narrative that the obama administration had decimated al-qaeda. so they ordered dr. rice, the ambassador to the u.n., to go out on the sunday shows and say that the stimulus for the murder was a video rather than a planned terrorist attack, which the am bass tore did. she followed orders. she was a good soldier. now it's all caught up to them. am i wrong? >> i think you're absolutely right. in science there is a principle which means that the simplest explanation for any physical phenomenon is most likely the true one. this is the clearest and most simple explanation for why a complete whopper was told to america on all five shows by susan rice. it did -- the real story would have gone against the narrative. remember the time frame here. we're just a week and a half after the charlotte convention. we are just after day after day after day of democrats dancing on the grave of bin laden, proclaiming al-qaeda dead since that was their only achievement in foreign policy, saying it over and over again, saying bin laden dead. so after saying that as a way to fend off all attacks on their other
to be nominated. this might be the ultimate trial balloon by the obama administration to put somebody out they know is going to encounter a lot of resistance up front and then whoever they nominate if it's not her is going to have a pretty easy sail through the confirmation, john kerry or somebody like that. it's unusual somebody we don't know is going to be nominated is working the u.s. senate this hard. is this an ultimate political genius move by the obama white house? are they thinking they're going to take this into a fight for senate confirmation? >> day two of this pr campaign to face the critics on the hill. senator corker is who we're going to have the opportunity to -- rice will have the opportunity to meet with him at noon. in advance of today's meeting, "she always delivers the party line, the company line, whatever the talking points are." is this an example, though, of rice facing critics -- explain the type of diplomacy she would need to display if she's going to go into negotiations with china? it's different than, you know, facing your foes on the hill when you're facing
the extravagance of the obama administration to be paid off by people paying a gas tax. melissa: yeah. >> they did it, probably didn't know this. they did it in 1990. did it in 1993. about a nickel increase each time. at that time almost doubled the gas tax. melissa: so incredibly regressive. hits the exact people they talk about protecting and that democrats talk about protecting last election. it goes right after, it hits the middle class and lower income people the hardest of course because it is incredibly regressive. let me ask you, i feel like today when i was hearing talk about trying to close this gap we're looking under every broke for more money and more tax revenue. doesn't seem like we're cutting spending very much s that the right impression. >> keep in mind, melissa. you and i know this. a lot of viewers might not know, we have 5.3 trillion deficit because of one person, that is obama. he doesn't seem to change his behavioral patterns now so it is not getting any better. how could we his own budget come up with $5.3 trillion in four years and then say, now we have to somehow find $1.

there. jennifer, thank you. jon: right now new questions for the obama administration and its changing story on what happened during the benghazi terror attack. top republicans on capitol hill want the nation's top intelligence official to explain what they say is his co conflicting testimony from the original talking points that seemed to minimize the chances that this was a terror attack. the director of national intelligence told officials in closed doors that no one in the intelligence community edited out any referral to terrorism. monday night they said it was the intelligence community that made substantive changes to the talking points. which is it? four americans died in that benghazi attack including our ambassador chris stevens. chris wallace the anchor of ""fox news sunday"" joins us now. chris, there seems to be conflicting information from the director of national intelligence and republicans say they want to get to the bottom of it. >> it's more than seems to be it apparently absolutely is conflicting. when you said which is it i hope you're not looking to me for an answ
. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east, particularly gaza strip and israel suggests. >>gregg: president obama, it can be said, has a checkered record on national security. yes, as doug points out, he escalated the drone attacks but, of course, he ignored advance warnings of a terrorist attack in benghazi, ignored the pleas for help, how do you reconcile or explain that unless this is just a conflicted and unsure president? >>guest: well, it is fairly schizophrenic. if you just look at the president's approach on terrorists, right from the beginning of the administration, it is almost like he wanted to bend over backwards to respect the rights of terrorists who were
